Established in 2007 by the Leatherby Libraries, the Community of Readers is the summer reading program for Chapman University. This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Book Review
I picked this book up years ago at a library book sale but never got around to reading it. I wasn't too impressed with the movie when it came out, but now that I've finally read the book I'm glad I did. It is far superior to the movie. The order of events at first seems random, but by the end of the book, one can see how intricately Niffenegger has woven this story. It is still slightly creepy to picture 40 year-old Henry romancing 18 year-old Clare (even though she is his wife/wife-to-be), but if the reader can just go along with that aspect of the story, they will find a truly enjoyable tale of overcoming, and sometimes submitting to, fate.
